An airline pilot recognized Mark and told him that he could play ‘Just A Closer Walk With Thee' on the piano. The airport is home to a public piano that anyone can play. That's when these two sat down and started to belt out these iconic lyrics.

While this pilot skillfully plays the hymn, Mark sings along. By the end of the chorus, both men are singing and the pilot is even showing off some impressive piano talent. It was an impromptu performance to give praise to the Lord and I hope others heard this sweet serenade.
